Neighbours save the day
By Andy Brown, Asst. Fire Chief
December 17, 2017 at approximately 10am, the Chilliwack Fire Department
was dispatched to a reported structure fire located in single family
residential structure in the 42000-block of Peters Road.
Occupants were not home at the time of the
fire, and a neighbor called 911.
The Chilliwack Fire Department went from building to building talking about "plastic flowers" such as here in 2009 (above). They explain to residents that's when cigarettes are apparently stubbed out in planter pots but instead sit there smoldering until they break out in flames and travel up the vinyl siding.
